Bob Dylan & Allen Ginsberg – Vomit Express

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

You can take an ancient vacation

Fly over Floridàs deep-blue end

Rise up out of this mad-house nation

Ìm going down with my oldest tender friend

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

We know each other now twenty years,

Seen murders, and we wept tears

Now wère gonna take ourselves a little bit of free time

Wandering round the southern poverty clime

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Start flyin’ with all the poor, old, sick ladies

Everybody in the plane are drunk, and they’re crazy

Flyin’ home to die in the wobbly air

All night long, they wanted the cheapest fare.

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the old midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

When wère down on the air field, Ìve never been there,

Except once walkin’ around the air field

In the great, wet heat,

Walk out, smell that old mother-load of shit from the tropics

Stomach growl, oh friends, beware.

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Me and my friend, no we won’t even drink,

And I won’t eat meat,

Gonna walk the streets alone,

Cars will blink and wink

Taxìs, buses and US gas all around.

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Start [read] poetry at the university, meet kids,

Look at their breasts, touch their hands, kiss their heads

Seen from the heart, maybe the four buddhist normal truths

“Existence is suffering”, it ends when yoùre dead —

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Go out, walk up on the mountain, see the green rain

Imagine that forest, finds, get lost,

Sit cross-legged and meditate on old love pain,

Watch every old love turn to gold.

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

See raindrops and the jungle rainbow, dancin’ men;  

Brown legs walk around on the mud road

Far from US smog, war, again

Sit down, empty mind, vomit my holy load

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Come back to earth, walk the streets in [shark/sharp?]

Smoke some grass and eat me some cock

Kiss the mouth of the sweetest boy I can see

Who shows me his white teeth and brown skin joy

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Go find my old friend, wèll go to the museum,

Talk ’bout politics with the cats, and ask for revolution,

Get back on the plane and chant high in the sky

Back to earth, to New York garbage streets and fly

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.

 

Ìm gonna come back with ???

At New York’s electrical eternity here

Pull the air-conditioner plug from the wall

Sit down with my straight spine and pray

 

Ìm going down to Puerto Rico

Ìm going down on the midnight plane

Ìm going down on the Vomit Express

Ìm going down with my suitcase pain.
